MA Excise tax.....just have to vent..

Sorry but I have to vent about this one.....Registered my car in 6/2009. Excise for 2009 was $221. So I was assuming a little more than double for 2010. Just got my 2010.......$680. WTF....they doubled the value for 2010. Of course the assessor's office has some lame excuse about they only value at 50% for pre manufacturer year and now that it is 2010 and it is 90% of the actual value......Good old taxachusetts!

You guys (and gals) should all get together and throw your cars into the harbor.

As soon as I saw the $680.00 I knew that you were from Taxachusetts. I got my $680.00 bill for my 2010 SS last week. My 2007 Harley was $115.00 and my 2002 Buick Century was $50.00. We have an election coming up in November, remember these taxes when you vote. Out governor has even proposed a candy and soda pop tax. He wants to tax the children's lolly pops. What a guy!

No, just the progressive politicians. I would be willing to let you throw your car into the harbor though.

You could always move to a free state. Total tax on my truck and my wife's car was less than $200 last year...

So he's stealing the proverbial candy from babies?

You gotta admit, there's a little bit of humor there, if anything just to keep you sane...

welcome to the Communist-wealth of Taxachusetts!

what did we expect when we elected the new governor who pledged to immediately reverse all of the savings that the previous guy put in place?

(actually I didn't vote for him, I threw away my vote like I do at every election . . . except this last one!)

I know a good spot... right next to the computer museum. I think tea went in there the last time we had this problem.

you sound just like me. I usualy tell people that no one that I vote for in a state election ever wins. The special election of Scott Brown broke the curse like the 2004 Red Sox broke the curse of the "Babe". Let's get rid of Deval before he takes the lollypops from all of the children. How are you enjoying the "tax relief" that he promised when he was running? Remember "Together we can" "dump Deval".

I'm sorry, what's an excise tax? Is it something like personal property tax. That's what we have here, but they don't send that out till the end of the year.

Makes me feel better that I didn't take a job in MA. Wow, I pay tax once on my vehicle here, not every year. Registartion is about 40 a year, so it's not that bad. WOW sucks to live in MA if you like your cars.

I HATE this state. So, we called up the Town Tax collector to find out how we can get a partial refund on our 2010 taxes, since we're moving to Texas in April....

First, I'm told that they can't issue a refund. After I gave her the WTF on the phone, she says "Well, we'll issue a refund once you bring the plates down to the registry....." I said "We can't bring our plates down to the Registry, we'll be in Texas... are you listening?"

She said "Well I don't know what to tell you sir, your plates need to be brought down in person to the registry, good luck... and try your insurance agent if you have any questions."

I didn't pay excise taxes last year, so I got wacked with a 1,382 bill for both years at once. I wouldn't pay it, except they sent me a letter saying they are going to impound my vehicle if I don't.

I hate hate hate hate hate this state.

Here's what's funny... I claim the same for State AND Federal Taxes.... I got 6,000 dollars back for Federal taxes... yet I owed MA 200 dollars.

Riddle me that batman.
